The latest moves by Cardi sees her flawlessly grace the cover of W Magazinefor the publication's annual Art Issue.
The spread has Cardi reveal details on her past, rise to fame, being a mom and even her feud with Nicki Minaj. “When I got pregnant, I was fucking freaking out,” Cardi, born Belcalis Almanzar, told the publication. “Everybody around me was like, ‘No, this never happened before. Every artist that had a baby, they already put in years in the game. This is your first year. You’re going to mess it up. How are you going to make it?’ ”
As for the Fashion Week Brawl with Nicki, Cardi explained how people told her it wasn't "the time or the place" to get into it with Nicki, but Cardi had a window of opportunity and jumped through it. “For a while now she’s been taking a lot of shots at me. I spoke to her twice before, and we came to an understanding. But she kept it going.” Cardi said, detailing how her breaking point was when Nicki liked, and then unliked, a tweet calling Cardi a bad parent. “I was going to make millions off my Bruno Mars tour, and I sacrificed that to stay with my daughter,” she added.
“I love my daughter. I’m a good-ass fucking mom. So for somebody that don’t have a child to like that comment? So many people want to say that party wasn’t the time or the place, but I’m not going to catch another artist in the grocery store or down the block.”
